Great review! I 100% agree. Fantastic movie, with the essential Goldsmith soundtrack, WHAT A SCORE! (this was my first soundtrack, now I have over 400)

Thanks Verhoeven, thanks Arnold and thanks Goldsmith (RIP)

Michael Grover

Excellent write-up, and I couldn't agree more. (It's very clever of you to have linked to this in your review of the remake - hopefully, you'll direct more viewers to the original.) I was old enough to see it theatrically in 1990, and it blew me away. Paul Verhoeven was one of the best things to happen to American movies in the 1980s and 1990s (SHOWGIRLS notwithstanding). His over-the-top sensibility really invigorated a tired Hollywood. It's a shame he retreated to The Netherlands and has been less productive lately.
